I run to greet her every day,
My face in wild elation.
I never fail to wag my tail
In hopeful expectation.

I follow her around the house.
Where she goes, there I'll be.
A simple pet is all I get
But that's enough for me.

What she desires is good by me.
If she throws, I'll play fetch.
Whatever game is hers to name;
If she runs, I'll play catch.

I only ask for tender words,
Someone to understand.
A gentle touch would mean so much-
I'd be hers to command.

But she has not been good to me.
She seldom wants to play.
Sometimes she's gone all night 'til dawn
To where? She doesn't say.

Now she's been gone for three whole days!
This is my epilogue.
It is no life to have a wife
Who treats you like a dog.

On that last post by Martie... OH MY GOSH!!

I just had a rescue (Boxer) that decided my six yr old was just the right size... tried humping him numerous times    Of course the six yr old didn't think it was funny!

Anyway... good One!

Poor Balladeer~

Poor little puppy !
Here I am thinking sweet little
thoughts and Martie and Mariee are
'woofing' it up !

Here, baby ...
roll over and I'll rub
your little tummy.


A new collar for you.

Nice boy !
Here's a treat ....


That's a good boy !
